Or this one: Nezara viridula, commonly known as the southern green stink bug:
The description on wiki says the Green stink bug can be differentiated from the species Nezara by its black outermost three antennal segments. The antenna on this bug doesn't look black so maybe it is the Nezara species...
I'm sure someone else on PN can confirm for us ;-)
